(3) The respondent was entitled to notice, but notice was not given in accordance with the standards of NRS 125A.255, in the proceedings before the court that issued the order for which enforcement is sought; or

(b) The child custody determination for which enforcement is sought was registered and confirmed pursuant to NRS 125A.465, but has been vacated, stayed or modified by a court of a state having jurisdiction to do so pursuant to NRS 125A.305 to 125A.395, inclusive.

2. The court shall award the fees, costs and expenses authorized pursuant to NRS 125A.535 and may grant additional relief, including a request for the assistance of law enforcement officers, and set a further hearing to determine whether additional relief is appropriate.
